Practising Wisely Workshops

Register now for one inspiring day devoted to helping you learn how to implement the Practising Wisely approach- all while earning up to 18 Mainpro+ credits! This workshop aligns closely with the Choosing Wisely Canada (CWC) campaign to implement good health care stewardship and avoid over-medicalization. The program centres on case studies and incorporates individual reflection and group work. It helps participants to build communication skills to guide their patients through the shift from seeking sickness to enhancing health.

During this one-day workshop, participants will complete four modules:

Module One – Examine the harms and drivers of too much medicine and explore a four-step approach to applying evidence to patient care with a focus on low back pain and ovarian cysts
Module Two – Reliable, renewing online resources are put to work to support practice change. Cases centering on proton pump inhibitors and statins for primary prevention are the focus.
Module Three – Cancer screening is the topic here, as participants differentiate risks and integrate relevant evidence into individual patient-care supported by shared decision-making.
Module Four – Evolving the annual physical exam to become a periodic health review personalized for each patient is a key element of this module. Poly pharmacy in the elderly and over-monitoring for diabetes are also addressed.
